"Chef Dean James Max’s newest modern-American restaurant focused on seasonal and regional cuisine. Following a two-month renovation, the restaurant will unveil its new look and new menu later this fall," it said.

The name comes from the fact that the restaurant is Parallel to the old Post Road, directly off of the Merritt Parkway.

Chef Chris Molyneux, who was with the hotel’s executive chef in its previous restaurant operation, will oversee day-to-day operations on-site.

Parallel Post is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. For more information please visit www.ParallelPostRestaurant.com or call 203.380.6380.
